    Another ruff joke from Maynard.

    Woofer is compact dimensions; bowl is medium sized, hence only soaked one corner... which fills out the fabric a little more and makes the blues more solid I think. Thought briefly of posting dog-bowl-soak vs non-dog-bowl-soak for a few nanoseconds.

    I'm kinda amazed by how nicely the three-pleat is wearing in. I've owned mine for a year, I wear it quite a lot, inside on cold days like this and as a jacket in the summer. It's a really quintessential Cone fabric in that there is a lot of weft showing; it's a mid blue with lots of grey and green which looks incredibly matte, really giving the feel of an old fabric. Hence it looks really stripey, with worn areas, the grainy areas with weft, and others a solid grey blue. It's hard to photograph as it's so subtle, but this is becoming a real favourite. If I had the cash I'd buy the matching jeans, too. The wear seems to have really come through in the last couple of weeks, partly because i got caught out in the rain. And i accidentally dropped the jacket in the dog's water bowl.

    they look terrific. Puts to shame my previous comments that the 33 can be underwhelming. And great to see you around again, hope life's treating you well!

    Not selling, swapping!
  6. Happy Jeans - Tcb 20s contest thread

    OK, well... I'll swap them for one of these:

    It's the Roy contest ones. They will essentially be 32/33 or so. ...although as I post them, I"m not sure if I can sell them. I actually designed the fabric (with Ralph Tharpe), when the hell will that ever happen again?...

    yesyesyes, super-jealous! That's beautiful. I'm having to make some heavy decisions to maintain my guitar fleet. Think my tagged Valencia 55s might have to go to help pay for my Jazzmaster refinish. PLus other stuff I guess. I know also some people sold their Roys, how much did they fetch?
  9. TCB

    (but there is constructional fault on TCB to make up for superior red tab... double stitching on yoke lines up, like prewar jeans, when it should be offset or staggered).
  10. TCB

    Absolutely. LVC use nylon tab, original and TCB is rayon. It's beautiful on the originals how it scrunches and folds up.
  11. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    I think that's a random error/variation. A lot of their current production, featuring White Oak denim, have that notice on the label.
  12. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Welcome! That fabric is definitely dyed and loomed at White Oak. It's either laziness (one label for all LVC) or else it's possible the yarn was actually spun in Mexico before it went to White Oak for looming - bod could well be correct too, maybe it's some other part. I suspect they put the same label in more or less every item that's sewn in the US to cover all possibilities. Odd fabrics are made overseas (for instance, shirt fabrics, some canvas etc).
  13. Levi's Vintage Clothing

    Great fit! You've reminded me what a great outline the 47 has. I personally wouldn't hurry for another wash, or would at least wait until they're a bit funky.

    these are that English classic, breakfast kippers, plus the wild pearl oysters...

    We had an amazing weekend in Whitstable, one of the few places in the East Coast where the sun sets over the water. It's said that Volvo's compatriot, the Emperor Claudius, invaded England based on report of the excellent oysters. Claudius was no idiot. First lot here are Whitstable Natives. Fourth photos is of the oyster beds. More to come...
